High profile guests line up for Chancellor’s radio takeover
Lord Victor Adebowale An award-winning comedian and one of the UK’s most distinguished barristers will be among the celebrity guests joining the Chancellor of the University of Lincoln when he takes over the airwaves of the on-campus community radio station.

Lord Victor Adebowale CBE will turn his hand to DJ-ing as guest presenter on a special programme of Siren FM. The takeover will be broadcast from 1-3pm on Friday 5th June 2015, promising two hours of entertaining music, discussion and guest interviews.

He will be joined live on air by high-profile stars including American stand-up comedian, Reginald D. Hunter, and member of the House of Lords and expert on constitutional law, Baroness Helena Kennedy QC.

Throughout the personality-packed show, Lord Adebowale will also play listeners a selection of his and his guests’ favourite songs.

Lord Adebowale said: “I am very much looking forward to my Siren FM takeover, as it will provide a wonderful opportunity to speak to some inspiring individuals and share my favourite music. I hope the audience enjoy listening to the show as much as I will enjoy presenting it!”

Chancellor of the University since 2008, Lord Adebowale is Chief Executive of the leading health and social care organisation Turning Point and is recognised as a leading voice for people affected by poverty, mental health issues, learning disability and complex needs. In 2000, Lord Adebowale was awarded a CBE and a year later he became one of the first ‘People’s Peers’ when he was appointed a cross bench member of the House of Lords.

For one day only he will become the host of Siren FM, Lincoln’s first community radio station which is based in industry-standard radio studios on the University of Lincoln campus. Siren FM, which is broadcast on 107.3FM in the Lincoln area, was recently named East Midlands Radio Station of the Year by the Radio Academy for the second consecutive year.

Andrew David, Managing Editor of Siren FM, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming Lord Adebowale into the studio here at Siren FM. We pride ourselves on offering audiences varied, entertaining and informative programming, and we are sure this show will be a real highlight for us - it will be wonderful to hear him in conversation with such esteemed guests.”
